“Be City” is an experimental concept project that aims to present complex subjects like anthropology, archaeology and linguistics in the form of interactive animations that are accessible to a large audience.
The goals of the “Be City” project are to build a visionary technological platform for transmedia, to test new
ideas about storytelling and to create a new online community.
Alice, a photographer, and Professor Pinson, a non-conventional anthropologist, discover how emigrants traveled to Tokelau island, Pacific Ocean. All they remembered about their journey is that they arrived by train and had escaped hard times. After living on the island for decades, they started refurbishing the trains and planned to travel back in time to Berlin - the city and time from which they came.
